Activists Put California Dems To Shame — Clean Up Tracks By Looted Trains

While Democrats impose mask mandates on schoolchildren, California trains are being looted by criminals.

Union Pacific, one of the country’s largest railroad companies, even said that it may avoid operating in Los Angeles County due to the thefts.

CNN reported:

Photos and videos showing piles of empty boxes littered alongside rail tracks in Los Angeles County, California have gone viral as shipping companies say they’ve seen a dramatic spike in railroad theft. Some of the boxes are packages from companies like UPS, Amazon and FedEx.

Union Pacific, one of the country’s largest railroad companies, says it may avoid operating in Los Angeles County following the spike in thefts, which it blames on lax prosecution of crimes. The containers and trains are locked, but can be broken into.

Union Pacific said last month in a letter to the Los Angeles District Attorney that it saw a 160% year-over-year increase in theft in LA county. The company claims that a December 2020 special directive issued by District Attorney George Gascón that changed how low-level offenses are prosecuted has contributed to the uptick.

Here is a video showing just how bad it is:

Rather than doing anything about it, California Governor Gavin Newsom apologized for saying “gangs” when discussing the thefts.

Conservative Activist Scott Presler has now jumped into action to help out.

He and a team of other activists have gone to the train tracks to begin cleaning them up.

He said he was told by police that they were not allowed on the tracks – meanwhile very little is being done to stop the thefts.

Watch Scott talk about the situation:

While Democrats fiddle, conservatives clean up!

‘I’m Outta Here’: Joe Rogan Says He’s Leaving LA For Texas

Jon Brown,
July 25th, 2020

Rogan told De Sena he is leaving L.A. for Texas “soon” because he wants to live somewhere that is “in the center of the country, somewhere it’s easier to travel to both places, and somewhere where you have a little bit more freedom.” Rogan also cited L.A.’s overcrowding, which he says proves problematic in the age of COVID-19.

“When you look at the traffic, when you look at the economic despair, when you look at the homelessness problem that’s accelerated radically over the last six, seven, ten years, I think there’s too many people here,” said Rogan. “I think it’s not tenable. I don’t think it’s manageable. I think every mayor does a sh*t job of doing it, because I don’t think anybody could do a great job of it. I think there’s certain things you’re gonna have to deal with when you have a population of whatever the f**k L.A. is, it’s like 20 million plus people.”

Rogan wouldn’t give details regarding his planned move to the Lone Star State but mentioned his producer Jamie was “all excited” to be doing the show from there soon.

Rogan floated the idea of relocating to Texas in May amid the lockdown order that Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom instituted in March. Though Newsom first rolled back his restrictive measures, he recently re-instated his lockdown in 30 of the state’s 58 counties, which encompasses about 80% of the state’s population.

“If California continues to be this restrictive, I don’t know if this is a good place to live,” Rogan said. “I might jet. I’m not kidding. I’m not kidding, this is silly. I don’t need to be here.”

“Texas is buck wild, bro,” he also said. “You can bring a gun.”

In a Wednesday interview with Daily Wire Editor Emeritus Ben Shapiro on “The Joe Rogan Podcast,” the two discussed Shapiro’s new book, “How to Destroy America in Three Easy Steps,” as well as the precipitous decline of L.A.

As reported by The Daily Wire, both Shapiro and Rogan commiserated that “progressive policies” had led to an exponential increase of homelessness, drug abuse, and general lawlessness in California’s largest city.

Responding to Rogan’s assertion that L.A.’s collapse was gradual and then all-at-once, Shapiro said, “I’ve lived in L.A. my whole life. And the move from L.A. being a pretty safe, fairly nice city, suburban in orientation, to just overrun with horror shows is really — it was a lot faster than I thought it would be. But you’re right, it was a gradual decline, and then it’s just off a cliff.”
